It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are. - ee cummings.

I love this simple, forthright declaration of the universal human quest, from the typically unorthodox wordsmith, e.e.cummings. And what better visual metaphor than a vivid, red tulip, bravely growing tall, standing out, with no apologies for it's bold beauty!

Lovely gift of inspiration and encouragement for yourself, the new graduate, or anyone in your inner circle (being the supportive, cheerleading, visionary friend or parent that you are...! )

◊ Print of my original hand drawn art and calligraphy.
◊ Reproduced with high definition UltraChrome Epson pigment inks (the best!...) on archival Aurora Fine Art Paper. Aurora is a beautiful paper with a soft white, matte finish and a hint of texture that is similar to watercolor paper.

Art image is designed for an 8x10 frame.
Paper size is 8 1/2 x 11.
(Frame not included)

Print is signed on the back, enclosed in a sealed, cello sleeve and shipped in a sturdy mailer, with love & care.

Also available in my shop as a Greeting Card...
